Srinagar: Terming the suicide bombing near Masjid-i-Nabvi in Madinah Munnawarah as the most outrageous and unprecedented assault on the religion of Islam, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti Tuesday said the Muslims across the globe shall have to raise a united voice against the perpetrators of this heinous violence.
The perpetrators have now crossed the last line by attacking the holiest of the places of Islam which has been a source of peace and stability for the humanity for centuries, the Chief Minister said while addressing public gatherings in Srinagar city.
The Chief Minister said such atrocious acts of violence contradict all humanitarian, moral and Islamic values and the perpetrators are spreading chaos and anarchy in the Muslim world and making both Muslims as well as other communities vulnerable. Its heart-rending to see how the holy month of Ramazan was marked by the worst kind of atrocities in the Muslim world including bloodbath in Iraq, Turkey and Kabul and slaughtering of unsuspecting humans in Bangladesh, she said and added that such attacks are cowardly attempts to spread fear and terror among the people.
Mehbooba said the latest attack on the Islams holiest city has now made it amply clear that there is a larger conspiracy behind these so-called groups who are spreading terror and shedding innocent blood in the name of Islam. Wherefrom they get so many resources to launch such daredevil attacks on Muslim countries and their citizens, she said and added that cutting across the political divide the Muslims throughout the world will have to join hands to stamp-out this dubious menace of terror from their soils and once again revive the real message of Islam centred around peace and humanitarianism.
Seeking peoples cooperation in stabilizing peace efforts in Jammu and Kashmir, the Chief Minister said before the deadly monster of violence raises its head again in the State, the people will have to rise and isolate the perpetrators. She said Kashmir has already gone through the worst kind of death and destruction for over two decades and it cant afford to lose another generation to senseless violence.
We are trying to meet the expectations of the people and I need time and your unflinching support in making peace a reality and development a right in Jammu and Kashmir, she said and added that her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had envisioned to restore historicity of Srinagar city and was working tirelessly till his last days towards achieving this objective. During his brief stint in Government between March 2015 and January 2016, Mufti Sahib extensively toured the Srinagar city around half a dozen times to personally monitor the progress of developmental initiatives in the summer capital, she said.
